From a solar eclipse to a sun dog, UW-Madison community members captured weather-related events across the world.

The university's Atmospheric, Oceanic and Space Sciences building held its eighth photography contest this year. Winners of last year's contest helped choose the top three finishers for the 2018 contest. The contest is administered each year by the Space Science and Engineering Center. 

Entrance in the contest was limited to anyone who works in or takes classes in the department, and all photos must have been related to some sort of weather event, whether it be water in its various forms, sunrises and sunsets, or severe weather events.

Eleven people participated in the contest and submitted a total of 25 photographs. Entrants were allowed to crop photos or make reasonable adjustments to aspects like contrast and exposure, but not allowed to alter, remove or add elements to the photographs.
